    An Endearing Tale

    I started out reading this book for class. I have always been interesting in World War II literature, but this one really got to me. As the synopsis describes, this book doesn't hold a veil over the horrors and atrocities that occurred during WWII and in my opinion, I'm very grateful for it. Movies based on battles during WWII usually take the action-y, explosion-y route because it brings in an audience. People want to see other people being blown up or shot. It's just a movie, right? Well, in a book, when someone gets shot or blown to pieces by an underground land mine, it becomes real. Especially, when you know the book is a retelling of actual events, not just based on a true story.

    Fussell brings to light all that most people forget about the war. The young men who fought and the young men who died and suffered. In his dedication, Fussell wrote: "To those on both sides who suffered." This book is a testament and a revelation that not only did the Americans fight, but the French, the British, and even the Germans fought and lost good, young men.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the truth about the war, through the eyes of a young man. In large part, this book is based off of the author's experiences. Not only does this ground the book into the genre of Historical Non-Fiction, it grounds it in the mind and the soul of the reader that "this actually happened, these boys actually died."
